Lancaster defends Red Rose pride

The president and CEO of the Lancaster Chamber of Commerce says last month’s CNN story about the Red Rose City left people who live there frustrated, disappointed and angry.

Faile says the content of the story was edited for convenience and was not completely fair and balanced.

He says the report could have potentially damaged Lancaster’s economic development efforts.

Faile says the “We Are Lancaster” campaign came out of how people who live and work in the city reacted to the CNN piece.

He says the signs and the t-shirts are being accompanied by a video about the campaign and a determination to use challenges that face the city to formulate a community vision.
